AMBER HEARD HITS BACK AT JOHNNY DEPP IN LAWSUIT: Amber Heard is responding to Johnny Depp in their million-dollar defamation suit, The Blast reports.

TRUMP DENIES CALLING MARKLE 'NASTY,' WHITE HOUSE SAYS HE WAS REFERRING TO HER COMMENTS: President Trump took to Twitter Sunday to deny calling Meghan Markle "nasty" in an interview with Britain's The Sun. Trump tweeted: "I never called Meghan Markle 'nasty.' Made up by the Fake News Media, and they got caught cold! Will @CNN, @nytimes and others apologize? Doubt it!" When asked during the interview if he'd known that Markle, now Prince Harry's wife and mother to their newborn son, had said critical things about him during the 2016 election, Trump responded, "No, I didn't know that she was nasty." In an effort to explain Trump's "fake news" accusation, an unnamed White House official told HuffPost that Trump's "nasty" remark had been referring to Markle's past comments about him, not Markle herself. The official said, "He wasn’t saying she was nasty. He was responding to the reporter reading things she had said about him in the past and he was saying he didn’t realize she had said nasty things towards him."
